W.D.Ky.: Def’s “Twitter page is rife with references to drug dealing and weapon possession” and that was PC

Defendant’s “Twitter page is rife with references to drug dealing and weapon possession. Lewis’ prior relationship with Doaty, coupled with Doaty’s own statements, corroborated her information and made it sufficiently reliable to justify a search of his vehicle.” It was also not stale. United States v. Doaty, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 173614 (W.D. Ky. Sept. 22, 2020).

Plaintiff’s suit against his PO for false arrest is barred in federal court for only pleading a state law violation and not pleading the Fourth Amendment. Even if it did, it would be barred by Heck. Tingey v. Gardner, 2020 U.S. App. LEXIS 30255 (3d Cir. Sept. 22, 2020).*

Plaintiff’s excessive force claim survives summary judgment. His allegedly being gratuitously slammed into the floor was already well established. As to the jail, delaying treatment for a broken arm for 11 hours stated a deliberate indifference claim. Krell v. Braightmeyer, 2020 U.S. App. LEXIS 30260 (4th Cir. Sept. 22, 2020).*
